CHAPTER NINE: The story of Alou, the most evolved character


This is the final science section, and depicts a set of extreme outcomes for our story world. It follows and shows the outcomes of Alou’s spreading actions, and lets the reader image the consequences of the new spreading about to occur in the final story segment.

This provides a thematic complement to the opening science section about pathogens, and along with the early microbiome section encourages the reader to imagine contagions as more than harmful. This section is the reveal for the “artistic science art” in the middle, showing the true science behind the interpretation, and linking the characters in with different pattern types in the science.
